We asked Nick:

 

Re-signed on for Mursley Development this season, what influenced your choice and were there any other clubs that wanted you?

I really enjoyed my time here last season, there are plenty of good lads down here and I like what the club want to do going forward in the future

How do you feel your season has gone for you personally so far?

I started the season quite well to be honest, I’ve had a few good performances, but then you always have that couple of games where your performances drop and it’s hard to try and bring yourself back up from that

Coming into the winter months now, what is the minimum you expect from now until the end of the season for the squad?

To turn up week in week out and get the job done!

Who has been your biggest influence in football?

Probably my Dad, he’s always been quite tough on me, but with the right intentions

Describe how your last 2 games have been?

They’ve not been too great to be honest, in both games we just couldn’t get started. Last week we went three-nil down then we had a ten-minute spell where we pulled it back to three all, this week we were beaten by an alright Twyford team, they scored a decent freekick and we just couldn’t finish

Home to Iver Heath this week in cup action, do you know anything about them & what are you expecting from them?

I don’t know anything about them, I think they’re a level above us. We’re expecting what we normally expect, every game is a cup final and we have got to go out there and get the job done!

Who is the biggest moaner in the dressing room?

Sam Clubley … if there’s something to moan about then he will moan about it

Sam Clubley

What is your typical pre-match routine before you get to the ground?

I tend to go to work before football really, listen to a bit of music, just kind of relax to be honest

What has been the proudest moment for you in football to date?

I played at MK when I was younger, & played at an alright standard before getting injured

In your current squad, who is the most under rated player in your opinion?

Gianni Palmiero, he’s come into the squad and when he’s played has been unreal

Who has the worst dress sense at the club?

Sam Cartwright without a shadow of a doubt!

What has been the worst piece of advice anyone has ever given you?

I don’t think I’ve ever had any bad advice

When you leave the football pitch on a Saturday, what is the first result you look for elsewhere, and why?

I’ll have a look at the Premier League games, and then have a look at the lower league teams

Who is the last person you would let choose the music in the dressing room (or car) on matchday, and why?

This one is a tough one, but I want to say Graham Anderson, he’s got a bit of everything on the playlist

What’s the one game left this season you most want to win and why?

We want to win every game, in this league every game is important, whether it’s a cup game or a league game

Finally, after you’ve saved a hatrick of penalties on Saturday, what can supporters buy you in the bar afterwards?

Well it wouldn’t be a first time for me! A couple of bottles of Peroni will go down nicely!

I also just want to thank Sport Shots for all the coverage!

Ducks flatten Moles to progress in County Cup

The eagerly awaited El Quackico on Wednesday night did not disappoint as it served up goals, cards & penalties, Aylesbury United winning through to the next round of the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup with a four-one win over Aylesbury Vale Dynamo’s at The Meadow.

Ken Feyi

The hosts took a twenty-fifth minute lead through Jamie Jellis who curled past Dynamos keeper James Weatherill, within moments it was two as Vale skipper Joe Fitzgerald was penalised for a foul on Sonny French and Ken Feyi despatched the penalty with ease.

After the break an early Ty Deacon strike was ruled out for offside but within four minutes he had his goal to put United three up, Harry Scott pulled a goal back for the visitor’s with twenty minutes left but Feyi bagged his second soon after to kill the tie off once more. Feyi had the opportunity to seal his hatrick late on, but Weatherill saved his spot kick, but the damage was done and it was the Southern League side who progress.

BBFA IT; Buckingham Athletic Dev 0-1 Mursley United Dev

Buckingham Athletic Development – 0
Mursley United Development – 1

19.10.2019

Last season’s Berks & Bucks Intermediate Trophy finalists Buckingham Athletic Development were knocked out on Saturday at the first hurdle by Mursley United Development, a fourth minute goal being enough to see the North Bucks & District Football League Intermediate Division side triumph over their Hellenic Football League Division Two North near neighbours. Ath did everything but score, dominating the second period they just could not get the ball in the back of the net, the woodwork along with some inspired saves from United custodian Nick Bevans kept the blue frontline at bay, Mursley themselves had late chances to seal the game but two late sin bins for the hosts killed the game off.

Tolu Ikuyinminu made the most of some loose defending to roll into the bottom corner before either side had really settled into any sort of rhythm, the remainder of the first half became a battle in midfield with few chances created. After the break the home side dominated, however a promising attack broke down from where Mursley sent the ball long downfield & Ikuyinminu broke free from his marker to attack Hayden Coombs in goal, as the keeper advanced the goal scorer chipped over him but wide of the open target, from the restart a high ball into the United box saw a slip from a defender which set Kieran Brady away, from six-yards his thumping shot rebounded off the post and away to safety.

Ten minutes from time a cross from the right was met twelve yards out by Tom Marshall who flicked goalwards only to watch Bevans throw himself up to push over single handed, as much as Buckingham pushed for a leveller they were almost caught with a sucker punch late on when substitute Michael Fehsenfeld was sent sprinting downfield but nearing the eighteen yard box he screwed wide. In the final two minutes both Louie Walters & Charlie Willis were sin binned which eased the pressure allowing the visitor’s to see out the remaining time.

We asked Tom:

 

How was your summer, do you miss football when it finishes or is it nice to just get away from it and relax?

It is good to get away from it all for a few weeks and relax, but it is always a buzz to get back to it and start pre-season games and training again

Signed on for Athletic this summer, what influenced your choice and were there any other clubs that wanted you?

I knew a fair few of the boys and seeing what they achieved last year made me want to get involved with the club again and so far, it’s been great. I also wanted to try a different league in the Hellenic and see what the standard is like compared to the South Midlands

How do you feel your early season games have gone for you personally so far?

Individually they have been okay I wouldn’t say I have played that well and still feel I have a lot more to contribute to the team. As a team we have started to gel in recent games and started picking up some valuable wins which has raised confidence in the squad

What are the expectations and/or targets for the season for you yourself, and the squad as a whole?

Expectations for the team is to hopefully finish in the top four or five in the league. As it’s our first season in this league it will take time to adapt to the difference in standard, but as a squad we are confident that we can achieve this. On a personal note my targets would be to score some goals and help the team as much as possible

Who has been your biggest influence in football?

My parents I would say, as they have supported me a lot growing up and come to a lot of my games still, my dad also coached me when I was younger, so he had a big influence

How much belief is there in the squad that you can have a successful season, and which players will be key for you to achieve this?

Belief is high and as a squad we are confident that we can achieve a lot this year, we all need to pull our weight of course but if Wrighty can keep scoring goals for us that would help. We are a young squad so the more experienced in the group such as Macca & Hass will be important to keep everyone motivated and disciplined

Home to Mursley Development this week, do you know anything about them & what are you expecting from them?

No, I don’t to be honest, they will be up for it as it’s a local derby, they will be probably be quite physical so we will have to deal with that. This is a cup that we want to go far in and potentially win, so we must turn up and get the win

Who is the biggest moaner in the dressing room?

Tough one as I haven’t been with the team long, but I would probs say either Willis or Harry Heritage. Most of the time they are moaning at each other to be fair

What is your typical pre-match routine before you get to the ground?

Every Saturday I coach a team at Moretonville so normally I am rushing back from coaching them so rarely have much time to relax before the game

Olly Golding

In your current squad, who is the most under rated player in your opinion?

Another hard question… everyone respects each other in the team but I would say Olly Golding, he does the jobs in midfield that nobody really wants to do, and it can go unnoticed

Who has the worst dress sense at the club?

I have heard some rumours that this may be Charlie Wright…

When you leave the football pitch on a Saturday, what is the first result you look for elsewhere, and why?

I always check the Arsenal result if they are playing and if I have had a bet, I will have a look at my acca to see if my teams in that won

Who is the last person you would let choose the music in the dressing room (or car) on matchday, and why?

The music hasn’t been that bad so far, but I know from previous experience that Sol’s tunes in the car can be questionable sometimes!

What’s the one game this season you most want to win and why?

I would say either Southam or Adderbury, we didn’t show up against either of them two and we would like to put it right in the return fixtures. Both will be tough games of course but we set ourselves high standards

Finally, after you’ve scored a hattrick on Saturday, what can supporters buy you in the bar afterwards?

If they could pay for my fines which I get after the game that would be great…

Sports Shots would like to thank Tom for his time this week
